100 Word Review – Spotlight (2015)

This is one of those films you really wish wasn’t based on real events.

In Boston in 2001, a group of reporters for the Spotlight section of the Boston Globe investigate allegations of priests sexually assaulting minors.

Written by Tom McCarthy (Up) and Josh Singer (The Fifth Estate), with an all-star cast headed-up by Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schreiber and Stanley Tucci, it is truly worthy of its Best Picture Oscar.

It is dark, personal and guaranteed to shock you to your core. The only words left to say are “Holy shit!” in every sense of that phrase.
